News.ro reported that a person was operating a website under a Hungarian address. On the website, many weapons, firearms, and explosives were advertised and put up for sale.
People who decided to buy these weapons got them by rapid courier. Among the weapons, many are lethal, and all of them were illegally brought to Romania.
The selling and buying were against the law in terms of legally buying and legally delivering such weapons. Neither the seller nor the buyers had permissions to engage in such activity. Therefore, this technically equals smuggling weapons. The Romanian police are still investigating the case. The couriers did not know what they were actually delivering.
The police went out to 103 addresses, and 303 police officers collaborated in order to find the illegal weapons and other dangerous items.
The illegally bought weapons, firearms, and explosives got delivered to a shockingly high number of counties. Besides Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, 36 counties were involved in the case.
Smuggled items were found in many counties, such as Alba, Arad, Argeş, Bacău, Bihor, Bistriţa-Năsăud, Botoşani, Braşov, Brăila, Buzău, Caraş-Severin, Călăraşi, Cluj, Constanţa, Covasna, Dâmboviţa, Dolj, Galaţi, Giurgiu, Hunedoara, Ialomiţa, Iaşi, Ilfov, Maramureş, Mehedinţi, Mureş, Olt, Prahova, Satu Mare, Sibiu, Suceava, Teleorman, Timiş, Tulcea, Vâlcea, and Vrancea. Romania has 39 counties, which means that only 3 of them were not involved in this case.
